"Very good recipe. I added some red pepper flakes and celery also. Another thing I changed was to saute the carrots and onions in a tablespoon of olive oil. Certain vitamins are fat soluble which means they need some fat for the body to absorb the nutrients. I never use fat free dressings on salad either but use low fat or just a little olive oil and some balsamic vinegar. When dieting, it is important to get all of the nutrients from foods. Thanks for the recipe."
"What a GREAT soup!! I decided to "go big or go home", and make a HUUUGE pot so i could eat it at home when i got hungry, and more importantly, to be able to take some to work all week...so i used 2 32oz. cartons of beef broth. I basically doubled everything...used 1/2 a head of cabbage, 4 carrots, 1 zucchini, green onions, 1/2 a large onion, 1 can green beans, 2 stalks of celery, garlic, and fresh parsley...i basically just started throwing whatever i could find into the pot...BEYOND YUMMY! i doubled up on the oregano and basil, also added a little thyme. That is truly the beauty of this recipe...you can play with it and make it your own. It really is VERY filling too...after i let it all simmer for about an hour, i had about a cup and a half...FULL! this is going to be the NEW staple of my diet!! Swimsuit here i come!!! thank you for a GREAT recipe dageret!! :-)"
"Awesome recipe!!! Been making this for years. Flavorful and filling. I use a can of Rotel instead of the tomato paste. Occassionally will also add a can of rinsed kidney beans."
"When I make this I use slaw mix for the cabbage, cuts down on the extra and prep."
"This is very good! I've made cabbage soup for diets with chicken stock, but the beef stock added a whole new dimension. Loved the suggestions posted by others....adding beans, etc, but I made this recipe to fill me up and not add calories or carbs. I chose not to use the zucchini, and subbed spinach. Perfection! I'll try adding some mushrooms next time, because I think they would be great in this."
"This is a must have in any Weight Watcher kitchen. I make a batch and freeze it in 1Cup containers. Every day I take one out of the freezer on my way to work and it's defrosted by lunch. Sooo Good!"
"Great soup. I read the comments that added both celery, spinach, and Chicken sausage. WOW... We just started WW...however this will be a staple for years to come with or without WW."
"this is similar to indonesian vegetarian soup,this one is a good recipes but if you want to make it little more flavorfull you can add garlic ,white pepper and salt grind it and sautee it and put on the soup,and for veggie i used cabbage and cauliflower and other veggie ,sautee cabbage and cauliflower for little bit and then put in the soup and if you like it more spicy when the soup boiling throw fresh red chili i used 8 chilis and i used baby carrot this soup is a keeper."
"I LOVE this soup! I usually double the recipe so I can eat it all week. I don't use zucchini though. It is too mushy and ruins it for me. I add corn instead. I also use half of the small can of tomato paste."
"What a fantastic soup. I also don't care for overcooked zucchini so I always add 2 C grated. In the summer when it's so plentiful, I remove the seeds from the large ones, grate it and freeze in 2 C containers. During the winter you can add this to any pasta sauces or soups."
"This is the best soup recipe ever if you are eating gluten-free. I slice the cabbage into long strips when I make it. For the first year or so, my gluten-allergic daughter thought it was noodles!
To avoid having the zucchini get too soft, I cut it a little thicker, cutting slices into quarters, and adding last, when the soup it almost done. I also use more tomato paste than called for. It makes a richer tasting soup."
"I haven't tried this soup yet but plan to soon. I just wanted to point out to all those following WW's (or trying to do it on their own) that this soup is no longer 0-points under WW's. They just revamped their program and now all their zero point soups are 1-point.
6/8/12 - I FINALLY tried this recipe and found it too bland for my taste. However, that is often the case with WW recipes & my taste buds :(."
"Amazing...... I made the original years ago and this is by far the best I've had. I added lots of assorted mushrooms as well as baby spinach and hot pepper flakes. I did sauté the everything including the cabbage before adding the beef broth to bring out the flavor. Enjoy!!!!!"
"What a delightful surprise! I'm not on WW and I only made this soup to use up some cabbage and veggies I had on hand. Delicious!! I am trying to lose some weight as well as eat a healthier diet so this is perfect for me. This recipe is going to be in regular rotation!! Thanks for posting."
"This is so good! It does not even taste like it is actually a "diet" food. I followed recipe for vegetables as written except for using red onion instead of yellow because that is all that I had. I just used 2 cans of beef broth instead of measuring out 3 cups. For seasonings I used the basil and oregano as directed and then added 1 tsp Mrs. Dash, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. I ended up tossing in 1/2 tsp of Frank's Red Hot too. This is perfect! I started cooking this in the morning so that I could eat it for lunch and I ended up eating it for breakfast too! Thanks for the great recipe."
"After making this again yesterday, I'm now revising my previous review from 2 stars to 4. I think the reason I didn't like it the first time I made it is that I had followed the instructions and cooked my garlic much too long..I suppose it burned, which gave the entire soup a bad taste. This time I sauteed onion and carrots in extra virgin olive oil for about 5 minutes, THEN added the garlic and cooked only til the garlic was fragrant. Otherwise, I followed the recipe using the beef broth and it turned out to be quite good, as well as quick, easy and very nutritious. And the next day, it was even tastier. I'm so glad I gave this soup another chance...I'll definitely be making it regularly."
"First time having this EVER... I also blended it (b/c of picky eaters) with a hand blender and OMG it was delicious."
"great, I added 1 jalapeno (raw with seeds) to the onion mixture, then at the end I added 1 pack of red peppers(pizza packets). Very good ty"
"Yummy yummy. The beef broth made a big difference. I've been eating veg soup ALL week and making many chicken and veg broth based soups so this was a welcome change plus I sauteed in one chuck tenderloin (tender and inexpensive!). I actually didn't use cabbage at all but rather doubled the green beans, zucchini, onions and garlic, as I wanted to use up veggies before vacation next week. Also didn't want to open a can of tomato paste so I threw in my last tomato. Seems like it would be great with mushrooms and scallions too as another reviewer mentioned. Overall delicious and so easy!"
"Perfect soup! Classic Weight Watchers staple. I add extra seasonings (double the basil, dill, red pepper flakes), green peppers and a can of diced tomatoes. Makes it so easy to stay on program!"
